YWCA Alaska needs YOUR help! For the second year, we are joining organizations across the nation in a bold effort to ignite public awareness and raise funds for the financial empowerment of domestic violence survivors through the Allstate Purple Purse Challenge. The primary reason domestic violence survivors remain in or return to an abusive relationship is because they don't have the financial resources to leave. YWCA Alaska's Women's Economic Empowerment Center (WEEC) targets obstacles that prevent individuals from attaining financial independence. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and we invite you to join us in our mission to support domestic violence survivors through financial empowerment.
